Thankfully an Heir and Space follower from my Facebook page was an angel sent from heaven and sent me a link to a jacked up live stream of the show on youtube. It was shaky, and kept cutting out, but I did get to see my darling Eddie Redmayne present. (Thank you Elizabeth!!)
Because really, if I'd missed that, I would have burned the entire state of Connecticut down-

In other related news, check out this spectacular vintage mahogany serpentine front chest of drawers I just refinished custom for a client. It's from the same furniture set as the yellow china cabinet that I showed you yesterday, but is going off to a separate home. As with the cabinet, it's from September 1948. Structurally it was in gorgeous condition, but it had quite a few nicks and scratches and a few bits of missing veneer on the drawer fronts, so I didn't feel bad at all for painting it. The client opted to keep the original Federal oval brass pulls (great choice!) and we went for a antique white with distressing for the case. I sanded, stained, and sealed the wonderful mahogany drawer fronts and top.
